Nick Mason’s Saucerful Of Secrets have added a further four shows to their 2020 UK tour.
Former Pink Floyd drummer Mason is joined in the lineup by Gary Kemp, Guy Pratt, Lee Harris and Dom Beken, with the band initially revealing a run of 13 shows in the UK and Ireland back in September. However, due to demand, they’ve tacked on four more – in Guildford, Brighton, Oxford and Ipswich.
In addition, the group – who play early Pink Floyd material, including tracks from The Piper At The Gates Of Dawn and A Saucerful Of Secrets – have also revealed a European tour, which will take place throughout May and into June.
Speaking previously with Billboard, Mason admitted that revisiting Floyd’s early material wasn’t easy when the project got under way – and called the process “challenging”.
He said: “Being an eternal optimist, I thought it would just come straight back to me. Sadly, I was wrong. Once you start examining Syd Barrett’s work carefully, it’s quite often more complex than you expect.
“It's not necessarily written like so many pop songs with an eight-bar section and the middle eights and whatever. It's quite often a completely different set of bar counts to what you're expecting.
“And that in a way was fun and challenging to get at the feel of the song, but not necessarily feel that we had to sound exactly like Syd or like David Gilmour or whatever.”
